Veteran to use ‘stronger alloy’ for sherman rims

Given that ewheels got a hold of this batch of stronger rims, i don't see a reason why they'd go back to the more fragile rims for future Shermans, including the Sherman Max. This is somewhat speculative of course, but I'd say it's a pretty reasonable guess. Rejoice!

Can anyone substantiate the 'claim' that the chinesium being used, is actually stronger? Is it more compliant (flex) or harder (brittle)? I really hope it is a more durable alloy. Only time will tell. Is it safe to say that the cast itself, has gone unchanged from v2? Is this technically a V3 rim now, or perhaps a V2.1?

Ewheels confirmed that the sherman max also has a stronger improved rim.   It did not clarify if its the same rim, but both this v2.1 rim and sherman max rim are supposed to be improved.

the right side looks stronger... but there again, the left side looks less stronger. how's that for an in-depth technical appraisal? :rolleyes:

I'd also like to see Veteran offering these at cost price to existing customers (yeah I know, funny one)
